Magnum P.I.M.P's weekend in DERBY!

Checkout what Magnum P.I.M.P had to say about his past weekend in DERBY!


An historic bout took place this weekend in St. Louis. The StL GateKeepers had their first public bout in the history of the franchise. With the GateKeepers first practice being just four months prior, the progress of this team has been on the fast track from the beginning. Taking on the also upstart Race City Rebels, this bout was to show each team how far they have come and how much farther they need to come.
The presence of nerves was clear in the first several jams as neither team had played in front of a crowd so large as was present for the double header with ARRG that night. The 1,000+ fans cheered on the hometown boys to an early lead and it was never close after the GateKeepers took the lead. The Rebels failed to get their offense started and with the GateKeepers' jammers able to cut their way through opposing blockers, the final score after two 20 minute periods was 125-17.
Big N Plenty was named MVP for Race City and I was named MVP for the GateKeepers. I blocked the majority of the bout and jammed twice scoring roughly 30 points. 93A Jukes were my wheel of choice for the bout and really responded well on the soft sport court. Shortly I will be trying out Stroker Slims, as the original Strokers were my first love. I look forward to reporting back on them.

Derby in Dallas

Congrats to DDD Hell Razors on their win over Green Country. Check out what Atom Derby's own Front Runner Matomic had to say.


Whats up Derby World:
Once again, it's Matomic in Dallas with some more derby world updates from the South Central region. Dallas Derby Devils travel team, The Hell Razors throw back there 10th WFTDA bout in the past 20 days against Oklahoma team Green Country Roller Girls. On their 4th anniversary of their league, the Green Country girls traveled down to Dallas to play Assassination City saturday night pulling away a win, then sunday night playing the Hellrazors to a much different lopsided battle as Green Country saw penalty trouble from beginning to end, having only around 10 full jams with 5 skaters on the track per half. Dallas seemed to capitalize by putting up numerous 10-0 and 15-0 jams while on power plays. End result was Dallas up by over 100 at the end of the game while only fielding one of their star jammers, Anita Riot. Both Roxie LaRoo and Miley Virus were sitting out resting for the upcoming Franky Panky tournament in Tampa, Florida, that will see Dallas in their first game this season with a WFTDA team outside of their own region, Cinncinnati Roller Girls, should be a good one in April!
Later kids,

Mechanical Lock Technology!

ML Technology is FINALLY HERE. This has been a long time in the making.. Check out the info Below. This will be on all our NEW manufactured wheels!!


Atom Wheels Mechanical Lock Technology™ Has Arrived!
ML Technology™ is another advancement in Atom Wheels’ line to make our overall product just that much better. Mechanical Lock Technology™ will allow for superior bonding of our two-piece hollow core hub design.
ML Technology™ is a lip that has been added to the cap side of the core to allow for better overall bonding between the core and the urethane.
In the diagram above you will notice how the urethane (yellow/orange) forms over both sides of the cap (blue) ultimately allowing both materials to bond perfectly. This will eliminate any hub issues that we have had in the past! If you have any questions about the new Mechanical Lock Technology™, please feel free to contact us at 360.456.8628.

How the Clover Cup Went Down!!

What an AMAZING write up from our Front Runner Matomic... CHECK IT OUT!!

Shortbus - (Picture used from Dallas Derby Devil Facebook)

What's up Derby World,
This is Matomic, down in Dallas, Texas. Just wanted to give everyone a quick recap of what happened this weekend at the Clover Cup here in Dallas. It was an AWESOME tournament for the SC region, most of your top teams, exluding #1 Austin and #2 KC, so it was an up-and-down tournament the whole weekend! Game 1-Day 1 saw Tampa VS Dallas, Tampa came out swinging and really opened up Dallas' eyes. Dallas came back really hard second half and ended up with the W. Game 2-Day1 saw No Coast VS Atlanta, Atlanta pretty much swept the floor with No Coast, although No Coast is looking much stronger than last year, it wasn't enough to knock any steam off of ATL as they steamrolled through. Game 3-Day 1 saw Houston VS Dallas, same result as Governor's Cup, Dallas domination, Houston's loss of close to 11 vets is really changing the dynamic of the Houston all star team, some of the skaters are experiecing their first tournament play ever between Gov cup and Clover cup. Game 4-Day 1, Tampa VS No Coast, pretty back and forth for most of the game, the last 15 mins of the second half Tampa pulled away. Game 5-Day 1 Dallas VS Atlanta, Atlanta came in and took full advantage over a tired and worn out Dallas team, coming off two full games already that day, opposed to Atlanta's cake-walk game 1. Atlanta had the lead from the end of the half until the end of the game.

Day 2 saw Houston vs Tampa, in a nail-biter all the way to the finish, with Tampa pulling it out in the last jam that saw both teams star jammers line up twice in a row against each other, Mistilla for Houston, Little-A for Tampa, best game of the weekend, hands down! Game 2 was Houston vs Dallas, yet again the same scenario that has now played out 4 times in the past month, Houston getting steamrolled by Dallas due to loss of so many vets. Game 3 saw a very determined Dallas vs a very rested Atlanta. Dallas lead going into the second half, and just lost all their gas in the last 15 mins, and ATL was able to run away with the W and the Clover Cup!

Everyone that was running well was running the Atom wheels, Anita Riot got tournament MVP on a borrowed pair of Jukes :cough MINE! Cough: and also announcers choice Merchant of Menace running some atom combo's…. Good weekend, and lots of diff Atom wheels out there, the floor allowed for harder wheels or softer wheels and I saw the full range, from Stingers to Strokers, whatever your flavor, Atom seems to have it!

I'll see you all when I see you!

All But Good Things!!

The following blurb is from Just The Tip from the Magic City Misfits from Florida.


So I got my jukes in the middle of feb. And I fell in love with them. I have the 95's and they are awesome. I grip everywhere! I skate on pretty much every surface and I'm never have to worry about slipping or losing my footing. And stops and starts are so much easier. You stop on a dime and can start super quick. The name fits them. You will see a big difference in your skating. I promise you that!

Wild West Show Down

Wild West Show Down was absolutely AMAZING!!! SCRV put together a great tournament and EVERYTHING ran so smooth. I would like to thank everyone for stopping by the booth to get information or just to say whats up. I would like to also thank everyone for the complements on the Juke Wheel. Atom Wheels strives to bring you the best performing product that we can.I am going to have to say my favorite bout was Rat City VS. Philly, WHAT A GAME. I am going to have to agree with Justice that it was weird seeing Kamikaze Kim Jam against Miss Fortune.It was great to play with people that you normally do not get to play with during the CO-ED bouts. Hopefully everyone had a great time and made it home safely.
